It’s not a secret that the majority of Smolensk heat networks and heat-only boiler stations needs urgent repair. In conditions when budgetary funds are absent for these purposes, the high hope is laid on business for which «warm conditions» of investment are created.
Nowadays the depreciation of Smolensk heat networks and heat-only boiler stations makes about 70%. Moreover, as of January 1, 2015 the equipment of 28 municipal heat-only boiler stations that heat the population and objects of the social sphere is worn-out for 100%.
Extrabudgetary resources are actively raised for modernization and construction of heat supply facilities. For now investors at the expense of their own means have constructed heat-only boiler stations for heating of Demidov technical school, Demidov boarding school, two high schools of the Demidov area, the central region hospital and a kindergarten in Monastyrshchina.
In the current year the changes are made to the regional law for development in the sphere of heat supply system in the territory of the Smolensk region. Such changes provide possibility of providing the state support of investment activity to the investors who are carrying out the construction, the reconstruction, the modernization of objects of heat supply system.
The main type of the state support of investment activity for investment projects is granting privileges on taxes. For investors it is established the lowered tax rate on income tax of the organizations of 13,5% concerning part of the tax that is enlisted into the regional budget. Also the investor is exempted from payment of the property tax of the organizations, regarding the property used in implementation of the investment project.
